Good looking engines and a great backdrop - love the log construction.

Tim, I really enjoyed seeing the Hercules especially...not too many years ago I had one just like it (less the pump)...I foolishly sold it in an effort to thin the collection...sure wish I had it back!  Also, love the log cabin.

Thanks everybody. I'm not posting much lately but I check in nearly every evening. This steam hobby has me liking all kinds of new stuff. I'll post a video sometime of my 1947 1/2 hp kick start Briggs and Stratton. Those things are addictive too!
Hey Nick, you don't miss anything! Thing two came out of a cereal box I think. I just wire tied him up there to ride up and down for fun.
